Every so often people have to come up with new words to build the "cachet". I remember decades ago, when I first heard the word, "provenance" applied to a car. I said, "Oh you mean who used to own it";-). The phrasing and other words are also useful when writing ads. "Presumed", "said to have", "assumed to be", "believed". There's always an oral history which can sometimes be confirmed and sometimes not. This reminds me of the Cambridge Special which recently appeared that had apparently been driven at Brooklands by Herbert Austin at 100 mph. A remarkable achievement for a car that would go that fast.
I'm waiting for a "continuation evocation " to come forward as the ultimate bullsh1t car.
No history, no accuracy but someone bought the rights to the name of the original builder and is trying to make a bob or two.
readers in Australia will recall KEVIN DENNIS never sold a USED car, he advised us he only sold PRE-OWNED cars. He did his own TV ads and took elecution lessons to upmarket his accent, sort of botox to the voice box ! cheers Russell
It is what I thought then. Another expensive word.
To give you all a giggle, whe I first started to notice the word evocation it seemed to be something to do with E types, then I noticed a few XK120 evocation. My stoopidity thought there was a company called evocation making new "replica" jags.
